Former Apollo Global Exec-Led SPAC Beard Energy Transition Acquisition Prices US$200 Million IPO

Blank check company Beard Energy Transition Acquisition Corp. (NYSE: BRDU) went public yesterday on the New York Stock Exchange. The company is seeking to raise US$200.0 million through its initial public offering.

The offering consists of 20.0 million company units priced at US$10.00 per unit. Each unit is composed of one Class A common share and one-half of a purchase warrant. Each whole warrant is redeemable to purchase one common share at US11.50 per share. The units will be trading under the symbol “BRDU” but once the securities are separated, the common shares and the purchase warrants will be trading on the big board under the symbols “BRD” and “BRDWS”, respectively.

Citigroup Global Markets serves as the sole bookrunner for the offering. The company has granted the underwriters a 45-day over-allotment option to purchase additional 3.0 million company units at the same IPO price.

The offering is expected to close on November 29, 2021, subject to customary closing conditions.

The blank check firm is being led by its chairman and CEO Gregory Beard, a former Global Head of Natural Resources at investment firm Apollo Global Management. The company plans to target businesses that are focused on “electric power grid opportunities associated with energy transition infrastructure buildout”.

Beard Energy Transition Acquisition last traded at US$10.08 on the NYSE.
